    With the relationship between Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting quarterback Josh Freeman and coach Greg Schiano seen by league and team sources as beyond repair, Freeman is likely to ask for a deal ahead of next month's trade deadline. Schiano, whose tenure already stands at a perilous point despite coaching just 17 NFL games, further alienated the quarterback by revealing why he was absent for a team photo, and the lack of trust between the men has long been no secret in that locker room.

    Furthermore, several executives on other clubs believe Schiano's refusal to ever really endorse Freeman is an attempt to undermine general manager Mark Dominik, who drafted Freeman in the first round prior to Schiano's arrival from Rutgers and who has also worked diligently to add talent to that roster in recent years. Many around the league believe Schiano would like to have full roster control as well, viewing Freeman -- who threw for over 4,000 yards and nearly 30 touchdowns last year -- as a pawn in a would-be power struggle.

    Caught up in the Dolphins victory, I missed this at first.

    Even if the report isnt true and Freeman doesnt demand a trade, none of this seems out of character for Schiano.

    Unless he rights the ship, losing like he has , Schiano is a dead HC walking. No way the Glazers will side with him over the GM...nor should they. Schiano is even less qualified to run the whole shebang than Satan, and we know all too painfully how that worked out.

    The Glazers are probably the stingiest ownership group in the NFL. They aren't going to pay him not to work for them. Unless they can find a reason to fire him for cause, he is going to stick around at least another year.
    I'm here to tell the truth about top secret Air Force project BAR STOOL. Gamma ray radiation from the particle accelerator under Joe Robbie Stadium is real! Get out while you can! This bad football team is just a front for something far more sinister!

    What success has Schiano had to make him think that his approach will work on any level? What was his record at Rutgers?

    Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo reported Monday that All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis is irritated with Schiano's stricter ways after coming from Rex Ryan's relatively loose regime with the New York Jets. Per Garafolo, Revis also is frustrated with the lack of man-to-man coverage on defense.

    Revis' chief complaint is similar to that of former Bucs tight end Kellen Winslow, who chafed under Schiano's militaristic approach to discipline before a May 2012 trade.

    Schiano's strong-armed brand of discipline might work in the college ranks, but it's no surprise that it's rubbing professional athletes the wrong way.

    From the outside looking in, this is a team bordering on disarray. The Bucs followed up a mistake-filled, last-second Week 1 loss with another heartbreaking debacle Sunday.

    NFL players typically respect any coaching staff that puts them in position to win, but they tune out when the opposite occurs. It's an ominous sign for Schiano that his offensive leader and most decorated defensive player already feel alienated just two weeks into the season.

    Darrelle Revis disgruntled at his team? Perish the thought!

    Still, its more evidence of widespread discontent. Havent seen a team unravel this quickly since the Cam Cameron Dolphins.

    From the outside, although Schiano and Philbin both seem to be no-nonsense HCs, the difference is that Schiano comes off as a heavy-handed buffoon with no accumulated NFL capital to play off while Coach Joe engenders respect through both his calm, dignified demeanor and credentials as a SB-winning OC. When a superstar like Aaron Rodgers attributes much of his personal and professional growth to Philbin, whether an autocrat or not, you know there's an underlying humanism.

    I really don't see a "my way or the highway" bull in a china shop (to coin a few cliches) like Schiano lasting too long in a league where most everyone he's bullying are grown men and millionaire$. Especially with no hardware. Sort of the "Saban Syndrome" all over again.

    More alarming is how two-faced and underhanded Schiano appears. Other teams questioning Schiano's motives is one thing, but for the players to have to call a meeting to determine if a vote was rigged is another.

    Saban comparison is apt.

    Bucs play the Patriots, Cardinals, Eagles, Falcons, Panthers, Seahawks, and then us(on Monday Night Football, excellent). And then they play the Falcons again.

    Legitimate chance that team starts out 1-9. Only the Panthers seem beatable for them, and they are dealing with their own problems.

    It's funny but I'm totally with Jets fans on the whole Revis thing. I thought Darrelle was talking about the 'family atmosphere' in Tampa and kept saying that his 'team' had determined that Tampa Bay was the best place for him to play.

    I don't have an ounce of sympathy. Not one.

    He wasn't derisively referred to as "MEvis" for a couple of years by some of the more objective jets fans without justification.
